TOYBOX

TOYBOX at TROVE

An exhibition at TROVE that led on from the discovery that the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham used to produce more “toys” than jewellery, guns or pens during the industrial revolution. It was discovered that the term ‘toys’ was used to describe items such as buttons, cuff-links and belt buckles. TOYBOX was an exhibition of performances, modified and hacked toys, and films that explored the different interpretations of the word “toy”.
